Following an acclaimed International tour the play will run for a strictly limited season

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will return to the West End following its acclaimed UK and International tour. The play will run for a limited season at Piccadilly Theatre from Thu 29 Nov 2018–Sat Feb 23 2019. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Fri 21 Sep.

During its premiere run, the play tied the record for winning the most Olivier Awards (seven), including Best New Play at the 2013 ceremony. Since then the play has been successfully touring the globe and has premiered in over 13 countries including a debut on Broadway in 2014 as well as performances in Mexico, Japan, Hungary, Belgium and more.

The play, based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, details the life of 15-year old Christopher who finds his neighbour's dead dog which has been speared with a garden fork. Christopher is under suspicion and begins to record every detail he can find in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington the dog.

Christopher has an extraordinary brain, is exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. The play unfolds as his detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time runs at the Piccadilly Theatre, London from Thu 29 Nov 2018 - Sat Feb 23 2019. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Fri 21 Sep.
